Here's what a few of our clients had to say about our services: 

silk"I have worked with StoryFinds for over two years now. Their promo ops for authors offers a wide and varied selection of ways to bring readers to your books. I've enjoyed participating in the theme weeks, the cover contests, author spotlight, and First Chapter showcase. The staff is professional, easy to work with, and quick to respond to any questions. I highly recommend them to all my author friends." Author Chris Karlsen

"Story Finds is a wonderful way to promote your book. Not only do they present their ads and promotions in attractive design, but also with precise details. They care about the author as well, notifying them and congratulating them when they see their books in the top 100 best sellers. Many readers will view your book in a professional way, and you will see wonderful results." author Connie Bryson. April 2015 Author Spotlight for her book The Hand of Grace: Stories of Modern Day and Bible Time Miracles reached the Amazon Top 100 list ranking

Thank you very much for your efforts and for publishing details of my Kindle free days on your excellent Website. I will undoubtedly use you again on all future promos of my novels.
